Mayra Alexandra's story

Mayra is 33 years of age and lives in Guayaquil. She started her business with a small stationery shop and, as she wanted to have a higher income, she began gradually expanding her business until she was able to open a store. She works alone from 6:30 am until 11:00 pm, and her major concern throughout life has been the illnesses from which she and her children suffer.

Mayra strives to offer her children a better life. She is single and has two children, aged 10 and 8, and she works hard to make sure that they get ahead in life. With this loan Mayra wants to buy cinderblocks and cement, so that she can improve her home and give her children a better place to live. She also wants to improve a part of her store. In the future, she would like her business to generate more income.
